It is funny where cats choose to sleep. This was Nine’s favorite perch (in the cat area right behind the couch – aka the dining room). But for several months after we got the giant cat-tree, he ignored it. V said, maybe get rid of it. It wobbles and we have no idea how safe it is; it easily falls over and many a morning I will find it laying down on the ground.
But just the other day, he started sleeping in it again. Every night this week. while we watch TV he has cuddled up and slept there. It is hard to throw anything out at this Zoo because everything seems to get a new life after awhile.
We know that we should prune the big tree because the branches are now over the house and hitting the picture window, but it has allowed such an incredible experience for the cats and us since birds are sitting right up at the window. Even squirrels come and look in on us and hop around at eyes view. We haven’t pruned it because the cost is so astronomical but we know we will have to soon. In the meanwhile, Mini is mesmerized.
How come cats are so cute when they sleep? I am sure that I am not so cute. I probably have drool on the side of my mouth and I snore. Cat snores are cute, human snores – no way! And they never wake up with a single hair out of place – that is just not fair.
Recently, I was going through a bunch of old bedding in the attic and I happened upon this blanket that I made Peanut when she was little. She loved horses. She loved everything horse: to ride them, horse toys, even her American Girl doll had jodhpurs and her own Mare.
I decided to use the blanket as a cover on my bed to keep the cat hair off my pillows. Now look who loves horses.
